There were once seven elephants so popular that they were named the "Magnificent 7" after the movie. Can you guess where they are now?


Almost 30 years ago, the last of the Magnificent 7 died of natural causes at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

For almost 50 years, seven impressive elephant bulls, all with tusks weighing over 110 pounds each, could be found at Kruger National Park.

The Chief Warden at the time was very proud of the conservation work they were doing at the park, so he decided to publicize all seven of them as a great example of Kruger's conservation work.

Each of them was given a name, and all were loved dearly by the visitors to the park. Check out the source to learn more about Dzombo, Kambaku, Mafunyane, Ndlulamithi, Shawu, and Shingwedzi.

Nigeria is notorious for counterfeiting drugs. They once donated 88,000 fake doses of meningitis vaccine to Niger!


One of the biggest threats concerning to Africa's health in the last few years has been meningitis. Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Nigeria, among others, have most affected by this outbreak.

Unfortunately, Nigeria is also considered one of the most corrupt countries in the world, particularly when it comes to the counterfeiting of drugs.

In 1995, Niger received 88,000 doses of meningitis vaccine from it's neighbor Nigeria. But before long, the authorities realized that the doses were completely fake. Making it worse, almost 60,000 people had already been treated with whatever they contained: Water, or worse.

Merriweather Lewis of Lewis and Clark may have been assassinated! But to what end?

Merriweather Lewis of Lewis and Clark may have been assassinated! But to what end?


Merriwether Lewis, along with William Clark, was dispatched in 1804 by Thomas Jefferson to find a water route across North America and explore the uncharted West.

Jefferson expected them to find erupting volcanoes, wooly mammoths, and mountains of pure salt. While they did not find any of those things, they did make massive scientific advances and eventually discovered the Pacific Ocean.

Many modern historians consider Lewis's death a suicide; however there is room for debate. He was shot twice and then cut with a razor before bleeding to death. Most think that he killed himself due to severe depression and potential bankruptcy; however, he made quite a few enemies in his time a the governor of the Louisiana Territory and some historians think he was murdered!

Unfortunately, historical records are scarce. We may never know the true circumstances of his death.
